've said the position on iran for both the president and mitt romney is very, very, very similar. >> well, soledad, we would disagree with that. the president came to power with a hand outreached for engagement. he kept quiet during the green revolution when those seeking freedom and space with civil society in tehran were being beaten, arbitrarily arrested and even killed. and he's continued to reach out. these sanctions he's now imposing now actually were forced on him by democratic senator menendez and republican senator mark kirk. the white house opposed those. the message in tehran has been one of weakness. and not resolve. bismarck, the great leader in europe in the 19th century once said that diplomacy without the use of force is music without instruments. this administration doesn't have credibility. the result is that the president of iran comes to the united states, and he -- he says that israel should be eliminated. he says that we don't have a right to contain his nuclear breakout. then our president doesn't have the time to meet with our best ally in the region, bibi netanyah

if you look at what they have said on this issue, both obama and romney's plans are vague. if i were moderating the debate that is coming october 3rd, i would spend about half of it asking them what would you do specifically. give us the diagnosis of the plan -- [applause] and tell us what you're really going to do. and part of that question is there has to be a willingness to compromise, and there has to be an innate willingness to do things that are painful for your side. i'm going to stop there, and we'll do questions. one more story. remember years ago the head of simon & schuster after i had published one of my books took me to dinner in new york city at one of these restaurants where you would never want to go where you have to pay. [laughter] and he said what's your next book going to be about in and i said, oh, well, i haven't decided. i'm going to do some thinking, some reading, some research. and he looked at me and said, what? i said, yeah, i want to do thinking, reading, reporting, weighing the alternatives, and he said why are you going to waste your time?

a nuclear weapon shows that ultimately both the president obama and mr. romney recognize the threat that iran poses. the issue is where do you go from there? fine, it's your priority. how do you deal with it quacks it's no good to say -- deal with it? it's no good to say what he would've said seven years ago, six years ago. that is not a prescription for the future. we keep looking back, the real issue is how do you get the iranians to stop enrichment? if you wait until there a month away or six weeks away and then so i'm going to rely on my intelligence, i repeat, our intelligence doesn't allow us to pick up your the good guys and bad guys in syria. our intelligence didn't tell us that, well, actually they did tell us that is going to be trouble in libya and egypt, but we ignored the intelligence. and there's a hearing today about it. pat kennedy is testifying about it. so even if we get the intelligence, that doesn't mean we will pay attention to it. how far do you want to risk that? what mr. rahman is saying is i don't want to take that kind of risk. i share with the president th

that was interesting, as well, leaning on a compass, it seems like mrs. romney and mrs. obama both really are spiritual. and they look to a higher source, right? >> yeah. what became clear in these interviews, they both prayed daily. in different ways, but michelle obama said you can't be in this job and not lean on a higher power. as she talked about how she invokes that with daily prayer and how they pray at meal time with their kids. and ann romney talked about how she prays while she's working out in the morning. >> mrs. romney, i understand this is your first time meeting her. i've interviewed her, as well. what did you think about her? first impression? >> you know, she's lovely. she's warm and honestly she's more open than a lot of political wives or candidates that i've interviewed in the past, which i really appreciated. and i know "good housekeeping" readers will appreciate it. >> she brought you to tears. >> she was talking about the early days when she found out she had a mass -- before it was over, i had a few tears in my eyes too. she was very sympathetic and warm. >> i think she had a li
